  • Thermomechanics of Viscoplasticityby Milan Micunovic

    Springer New York 2009; US$ 163.30

    This comprehensive monograph is the first to treat the thermomechanics of viscoplasticity. It is intended for researchers and students in the fields of material science and continuum mechanics and is especially useful to the emergent field of biomechanics. more...

  • Thermodynamicsby Wassim M. Haddad; VijaySekhar Chellaboina; Sergey G. Nersesov

    Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 80.00 US$ 64.00

    This book places thermodynamics on a system-theoretic foundation so as to harmonize it with classical mechanics. Using the highest standards of exposition and rigor, the authors develop a novel formulation of thermodynamics that can be viewed as a moderate-sized system theory as compared to statistical thermodynamics. This middle-ground theory involves... more...

  • Mass Transferby Koichi Asano

    Wiley 2007; US$ 197.00 US$ 170.73

    This didactic approach to the principles and modeling of mass transfer as it is needed in modern industrial processes is unique in combining a step-by-step introduction to all important fundamentals with the most recent applications. Based upon the renowned author's successful new modeling method as used for the O-18 process, the exemplary exercises... more...

  • Introduction to Thermodynamics and Kinetic Theory of Matterby Anatoly I. Burshtein

    Wiley 2008; US$ 165.00 US$ 143.00

    Imparts the similarities and differences between ratified and condensed matter, classical and quantum systems as well as real and ideal gases. Presents the quasi-thermodynamic theory of gas-liquid interface and its application for density profile calculation within the van der Waals theory of surface tension. Uses inductive logic to lead readers from... more...

  • Thermodynamik der Verbrennungskraftmaschineby Rudolf Pischinger; Manfred Klell; Theodor Sams

    Springer Vienna 2009; US$ 146.38

    Aufbauend auf die Zusammenstellung relevanter Grundlagen der Thermodynamik und die Darstellung idealisierter Motorprozesse werden aktuelle null-, quasi-, ein- und mehrdimensionale Methoden zur Analyse und Simulation des realen Motorprozesses besprochen, wobei Fragen des Wärmeübergangs, der Verbrennung, der Schadstoffbildung und des Ladungswechsels... more...

  • Time and Thermodynamicsby Kyle Kirkland

    Infobase Publishing 2007; US$ 42.00

    Temperature is vital to the health and welfare of all living beings, and Earth's temperature varies considerably from place to place. Early humans could only live in warm areas such as the tropics. Although modern humans have the technology to keep their houses and offices warm even in cold environments, the growth and development of civilization... more...

  • Statistical Thermodynamics and Microscale Thermophysicsby Van P. Carey

    Cambridge University Press 1999; US$ 88.00 US$ 72.16

    This book provide an interwoven development of classical and statistical thermodynamic principles from a modern perspective. more...

  • Advanced Computational Methods and Experiments in Heat Transfer XIby B. Sunden; U. Mander; C.A. Brebbia

    WIT Press 2010; US$ 268.00

    Research and development of computational methods for solving and understanding heat transfer problems continue to be important because heat transfer topics are commonly of a complex nature and different mechanisms such as heat conduction, convection, turbulence, thermal radiation and phase change may occur simultaneously. Typically, applications are... more...

  • Discover Entropy and the Second Law of Thermodynamicsby Arieh Ben-Naim

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 23.00

    This is a sequel to the author's book entitled "Entropy Demystified". The aim is essentially the same as that of the previous book by the author: to present Entropy and the Second Law as simple, meaningful and comprehensible concepts. In addition, this book presents a series of experiments which are designed to help the reader discover... more...

  • Commentary on the Principles of Thermodynamics by Pierre Duhemby P. Needham

    Springer Netherlands 2011; US$ 141.52

    This volume offers translations of early work of Pierre Duhem, illustrating his interest in the rigorous development of physical theory for which he is famous. Benefits scholars of history and philosophy of science, and the development of physical chemistry. more...
